So I've been diabetic (again) now for about a year. And, I have to admit, I've been a terrible diabetic.
Since I'm on pills I feel like I don't have to watch my blood sugar numbers too closely as they don't work with the precision of insulin. I also feel like I'm entitled to eat whatever the heck I feel like, because I'm not overweight and therefore I'm not diabetic because I'm overweight.
Yes, I know intellectually these are all bad things, but my motivation to really take control is pretty low right now. I don't really know how to change it.
I keep thinking it's because of the pills, and that they're a blunt instrument so that I don't really have to pay attention to what I'm doing. It's like the difference between juggling with balls and juggling with knives. There are no major consequences if you get it wrong with balls, but if you mess up with knives you'll end up in a bad place.
